    So the country literally driving EDM, the US, just can’t get an orbital show ever now ? wtf………….

  2. Macon 26 Mar 2012 at 2:49 am

    I live in Perth, West Australia and am saddened not to get a date on the West Coast. But I’ve never seen Orbital live so am travelling over to Melbourne just for them! Oh, and I’m a music reviewer for the Perth street press and have just put Wonky forward as Album Of the Week in the next issue. 🙂

  3. Martinon 28 Mar 2012 at 11:32 am

    What about doing in Belgium? I could do Lille but the DJ set is not as attractive as the real thing.

  4. Miukuon 01 Apr 2012 at 7:25 pm

    I would really LOVE to see you in Finland. I was going to see you in DBL (it was 2001) but then you canselled the gig. 🙁 You have been my favourite band since 1991 😉 so hopefully I can arrange a trip to see you at your tour.

    Wish you all the best and hopefully I’ll see you soon!! 🙂

  5. Sleeon 02 Apr 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Please come to the US, haven’t seen you guys since 96 at Organic. One of my all time favorite shows.

  6. kynenon 03 Apr 2012 at 6:23 am

    @Miuku You and me are in the same boat mate! I was jumping up and down and then it got cancelled (for whatever reason) and I was devastated….

  7. Brendanon 03 Apr 2012 at 8:51 pm

    We need you in the USA!!! Chicago… the home of house… will welcome you guys with open arms. 🙂

  8. Svenon 04 Apr 2012 at 2:21 am

    Perhaps a trip to the USA? Maybe Detroit? 😀

  9. Brianon 04 Apr 2012 at 7:06 pm

    Surely you will be coming to San Francisco!

  10. JWC007on 05 Apr 2012 at 4:30 am

    Awaiting the return of the mighty ORBITAL!!!

  11. Tirlochon 05 Apr 2012 at 5:49 pm

    Is there any chance at all that Orbital will do a show in America this year? I am going to miss Electric Picnic in Ireland and I would do anything to see them play live again. At least play in New York before the end of the year. Best live act I have ever seen.

  12. Tomon 06 Apr 2012 at 1:21 am

    NEW YORK!!

  13. Guyon 08 Apr 2012 at 3:30 pm

    I have a spare ticket for Royal Albert Hall gig Tuesday 10th. Interested for face value charge? Stalls G

  14. Jeffon 09 Apr 2012 at 3:32 pm

    USA, USA. Please tour the states again, I saw you in San Francisco in 2010, my 8th time seeing you. My dream tour for the west coast would be a night in San Diego, a night or two in Los Angeles and a night in San Francisco. If that happened, I would catch them all.

  15. Johnon 10 Apr 2012 at 10:04 am

    Saw the boyz @ Cambridge last night SWEET!! Best gig in a very long time. Don’t leave it too long before you return. Later…..

  16. Billon 11 Apr 2012 at 2:28 am

    Please come to the USA and play Portland, OR !

  17. Lizon 11 Apr 2012 at 3:26 am

    Please come to Perth – the most beautiful weather and beaches in the whole of Australia! I saw Orbital last when I was at Glasgow Uni at the Barrowlands, it was too long ago! Want to see them again..

  18. Wan Ling Tea House - Tie Guan Yinon 11 Apr 2012 at 3:13 pm

    Coming all the way to Japan and not stopping in Shanghai. Sure you would have a fantastic time. China, especially Shanghai is growing hotbed of electronic music and you guys would be a huge boost to the scene.

    James here has seen you over 10 times since the first time in ’92 at Brixton.

    Please pop by for tea if you make it 😉

  19. Jeremyon 17 Apr 2012 at 3:32 am

    PLEASE come to the USA!!!

  20. gavin ellison 21 Apr 2012 at 5:04 pm

    oh please please please come to bc, western canada, there’s many fans of your tunes here. haven’t seen you guys since glasto ’94. heady days. need them again. thankyou for everything you do to us!

  21. Cstaron 23 Apr 2012 at 1:58 am

    Please please please come to Canada! Specifically, Vancouver! I can’t tell you how much that would mean to SO many fans over here. 🙂

  22. Zaphon 01 May 2012 at 2:57 am

    When I found out Orbital were playing in Adelaide, I was over the moon and bought tickets straight away. I am now dumbfounded to be told by the ticketing agency that the gig is cancelled and no one has been able to tell me why? Why?!
    I note that the gig is still listed. What’s going on?

  23. loopzon 01 May 2012 at 8:32 am

    I’m looking into this for you.

  24. adminon 01 May 2012 at 9:15 am

    Detail from the Promoter.

    Unfortunately the Orbital show scheduled to take place at Adelaide HQ on 3rd May is cancelled. Refunds are available from point of purchase. Also the Orbital show on 4th May has been moved from The Palace to Billboard. Original tickets are valid for the new venue.

  25. Andyon 03 May 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Please come to New York! New album is amazing!

  26. Adam Walteron 04 May 2012 at 12:56 pm

    C’mon, show the USA some love! New York City is all I ask…

  27. Michael Con 06 May 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Been a fan since 1991. Watched many times live and even crewed for them in Leicester UK whilst at Uni there in 1994. Now living in Toronto and desperate for at least one North American date, preferably some in Canada too, that I can go to. Any hope for 2013?

  28. mercainaon 08 May 2012 at 2:38 pm

    Bloody bastards you live in the fucking Uk wich is 2 hours from Germany and this is not in your tour plans.

    come on you fuckers make a proper European tour

  29. torgon 17 May 2012 at 9:14 pm

    settle down euro’s at least they’re playing on your continent 😉


    Coachella next year if not this? I’d go two weekends in a row just for you!

  30. Ericon 18 May 2012 at 12:17 am

    US Tour dates? Ever? Please come to the US. We’re not all crazy gun toting, evangelical homophobes. Think about it?

  31. mikeon 30 May 2012 at 12:12 am


  32. mikeon 30 May 2012 at 12:13 am

    last time i saw Orbital was community service tour! that was a loooooooong time ago!!! america please?!

  33. Aimee Kuesteron 25 Jun 2012 at 2:45 am

    PLEASE PLEASE!!! Steve, you gotta explain why there’s no USA dates? I haven’t seen Orbital play but once, back in 2001 in Colorado.. reading the above posts.. I’m not the only one losing their shit!! WONKY IS UNREAL… I have to see them live!! xxoo

  34. Chrison 27 Jun 2012 at 6:03 pm

    I found a listing for a gig of yours on another website (a trusted one) for the 6th of December this year at the HMV Picture House in Edinburgh, but can’t see it here… is it supposed to be happening? I’m getting all excited and I’ll be pretty pissed if it’s all for nothing.

  35. Mariuson 16 Jul 2012 at 1:49 pm

    Come to Romania.You came here in 2010 and this was the best musical event in my life.I grew up with your music and came at best fest feeling nostalgic and thought that this is 2010 and can not expect much from you but you proved once again that your music has cosmic powers and can transcend space and time.
    For me this was maybe the only perfect thing i saw in my life.After the last track i was absolutly satisfied and with the feeling of completness and didnt want any minute extra.
    Unbeliveble analog sound and inspired armonies,beats and synhesis skills.
    I really want to see my heroes once again!!!

  36. Hamishon 17 Jul 2012 at 1:30 pm

    Chris, the USA isn’t even figuratively driving EDM, let alone literally. It’s gaining speed but there’s a lot of catching up to do.

    And Mercaina, you realise that not only is the UK two hours from Germany, but Germany is also two hours from the UK?

  37. Keithon 20 Aug 2012 at 5:07 pm

    Summer 96 (maybe 97), Chicago at the Metro. Amazing show. Just amazing. Please come back to the States!

  38. xsieon 29 Aug 2012 at 6:04 am

    FYI – Orbital are playing at the following US shows

    9/22 San Bernadino, CA @ Nocturnal Wonderland
    9/24 San Francisco, CA @ Regency Ballroom
    9/26 Vancouver, BC @ Vouge Theatre
    9/27 Seattle, WA @ Paramount Ballroom (Decibel Festival)
    9/28 Portland, OR @ Roseland Theater
    10/27 Asheville, NC @ Moogfest



  39. dogstandardon 29 Aug 2012 at 1:07 pm

    Chris, The US is only catching up with dance music. It’s been huge in Europe for 20 years. Although a lot of genres started in the US it was the UK and Europe that embraced it. I’ve been listening to Orbital since ’95 and seen them about 10 times, so I do feel your pain in missing out.

  40. JayCeeon 05 Sep 2012 at 12:55 am

    please come to USA… Austin, TX. would be best 🙂

  41. rnenergyon 06 Sep 2012 at 2:04 pm

    What about Ukrane? Guys, have you been to Ukrane? Please come and show the REAL music))

  42. glenalton 25 Sep 2012 at 8:44 pm

    Orlando, Florida Please!!!!!

  43. Denison 27 Sep 2012 at 2:02 pm

    I see a print with “ORBITAL 9 novemeber in Moscow”
    but i don’t see this date in your list.

  44. Kleber Runge (DJ Zomber)on 08 Dec 2012 at 1:03 am

    And in São Paulo, Brazil. When will it be?

  45. Stevoon 16 Dec 2012 at 2:08 pm

    Just seen the last gig at Brixton and sad that that’s it for this year. I managed to see them three times this year and, for me, Brighton Dome was the best but that did have something to do with getting a backstage pass after and meeting both Phil & Paul and having a natter with them. Shame Sad But True has been “binned” from the set list – I love that tune! Belfast’s new addition of heavy synth three and-a-half minutes in sounds oh so sweet and is always good to hear live – it’s my wife’s’ favourite. What’s next?

  46. Agayan Alexanderon 02 Feb 2013 at 7:53 pm

    Hi Paul, Hi Phil.. Hi there !!!)) We stil waiting you in Russia!! I listen to your music from 15 years(now iam 31))) i love youre music, we love youre music in russia. And you never comes. you never gave a concert in Russia. Please come to us! it would be great! I promise you a full stadium people=) 50-100 thousand people will come!! =) We all very love you! We stil waiting you!! Please PLEASE come2us!!!!

  47. rusty1187on 05 Jun 2013 at 1:39 pm

    i saw them live in san francisco several vears ago… first and only time to the us?
    i found out a day before the show, and my girlfriend and i drove 1200 miles all day and night to get there in time!we live up by the canadian border. made it to the show on time and watched phil and paul do there thing. definatly worth the $2000 it cost us to go. (parking in san francisco is $10.00 an hour!) i wish they would visit again…
